After our record heat spell a few weeks ago I wasn't sure what Spring was going to do. Me and Mom were worried about all the daffodils and tulips and other bulbs. While they got growing REALLY early, they were very short and there weren't very many buds on them. Mom planted 250 more bulbs last Fall and they were hardly showing at all.
Mom and I have been going down into the lower garden to keep an eye on stuff. The big lenten roses (notice them in my profile photo?), were looking just like normal, but pretty early! The daffodils and snowdrops that were budded all blossomed and died, in about three days!!! So did the little crocuses (croci?) We were more worried than before.
Well, a couple of weeks ago it got "normal", around 45 degrees each day and around 25 each night. Suddenly, we noticed TONS and TONS of buds popping up in the already dead clumps of daffodils and other bulbs. And, this week all the new ones we planted started coming up, too.
Today there were hundreds of blooms in the garden in front of the kennels, along with many more buds ready to open. Still not too many down by the pond, but more than we expected. Me and Mom are VERY happy again, and I suspect if it doesn't rain tomorrow I will be getting some new photos in the phlowers, or fotos in the flowers, whichever!!!
